Filled with a seafood- and pork-filled broth, these dumplings are fun to poke, and, obviously, popular with the Instagram crowd.

As a coffee drinker with burnt tongue PTSD, I was mostly worried about the hotness of the soup. Thankfully, the broth was served at a drinkable, hot-but-not-scalding temperature.

Though the liquid is more delicately seasoned than your standard soup dumpling’s — the broth draws all of its flavor from the seafood, beef, vegetable and chicken, sans MSG — it’s savory and delicious.

“My mom spends a lot of time cooking the broth to make sure the flavor comes from the meat, and that it’s healthy,” owner Yuan Lee said. “It’s home-flavored and basic, but basic is always the best.”
